Ahmad Fakhry and Cian Corcoran met in their final year in NCAD in 2009 and made the brave move to start up their own firm, Designgoat, a year later – and the pair haven’t looked back since.?Known for their uber-modern, pared-back style, you’ll find their distinctive design stoamp on hip eateries such as Brother Hubbard and 3Fe and funky fashion store Indigo & Cloth in Temple Bar.Over the years, the pair have worked on numerous projects in Dublin and abroad; across interior design and graphic design – from coffee shops to coffee machines and even installations in phone boxes and galleries.?If we had to pick our favourite area of Dublin it would be Dublin 8, specifically the area around our work base, South Studios. It’s proper old Dublin and a real creative hub with the Fumbally Exchange and the Fumbally Caf?.??Next up for Designgoat? ?A line of furniture, we hope.?
